Our Hickory Golf Challenge was started in 1999 and proved so popular that it is now an annual event. We supply the golfers with a set of antique hickory shafted clubs with which to play a serious 18 hole tournament, but if you have your own set of hickories you are welcome to use them. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the term “hickory” it is the wood out of which golf clubs used to be made.
The tournament is now well established at Burford Golf club and after a successful day (for some) players and partners congregate in the clubhouse for well deserved drinks and dinner followed by cheerful speeches and prize giving.
The Hickory challenge has sparked quite a bit of interest and in 2008 the German Television Channel Euromaxx produced a feature that showcased that year's exploits. This can be viewed by following the link below.
Should you wish to participate in “The Schotten Hickory Challenge” or if you would like to arrange for your own hickory day then please contact us for more details.
